When We Fight We Win

I’ve stolen my title from Greg Jobin-Leeds and AgitArte’s handsome new book, which contains examples of the boldly-colored posters that now signal great progressive causes and serve to drum up support.

It may seem strange to say that last night’s New Hampshire victory, by twenty points, of an apparently harmless, idealistic old man is the beginning of the release of horrors. But I think it may be.
